SEATIDE Kick-off meeting, Chiang Mai; 1st SEATIDE Steering Committee meeting
01 February 2013

Seatide held its Kick-Off meeting in Chiang Mai on the 1st and 2nd of February 2013. More than 30 participants attended the two-days event that started at Chiang Mai University on the first day and went on at the EFEO research centre the second day.

The first day was dedicated to financial and administrative matters. The participants had the opportunity to learn about the European regulations and policies regarding research funding. The meeting benefited from the presence of Mr Philippe Keraudren, Deputy Head of Research Unit at the European Commission.

The second day was devoted to scientific issues, especially the distribution of the researchers among the thematic Work Packages, the creation of a Steering Committee for the project as well as the agenda for the project events. The participants decided to meet again in Chiang Mai in February 2014 for the first Research Workshop of the project, during which they will present the first results of the field researches they conduct as part of their involvement with the Seatide project.
